'm tara wall sitting in for bonnie erbe. welcome to "to the contrary," a discussion of news and social trends from diverse perspectives. up first, the nation's capital takes on kids and sex. a new standardized test in the district of columbia will test children on more than just reading and math. this test will have questions on human sexuality, contraception and drug use. the 50-question exam debuts this spring and is the nation's first and only. washington, d.c., has some of the country's highest rates for teen pregnancy and stds and school officials hope the test will explain what knowledge students have about these topics. but sex education and standardized testing are controversial topics for parents and teachers. and some parents are concerned sex education topics will now be taught to the test like reading and math. others praise the district's new initiative but worry it doesn't do enough for prevention. the test will also include questions about exercise, healthy eating and mental health. >> is the district doing the right thing for its students? >> tara, i don't know about th

that you physically endanger another person's life. i mean, you don't have to be bonnie and clyde to be a bank robber, and you don't have to be al qaeda to be a terrorist. >> i don't think these people are terrorists. i think the people and the agencies and the industry that they're fighting are the true terrorists. when you've got big timber companies coming into the northwest, clear-cutting old- growth forest; big oil companies with their big oil spills that cost billions and billions and billions of dollars-- you don't see the fbi raiding these executives' homes or anything like that. they aren't being threatened with life in prison. all they really do is just pay a fine and move on to the next court. >> the old adage that, you know, one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter is true. you know, if you agree with their motives, "wow, they're a hero. they're not a terrorist at all." if you disagree with their motives, then they're a terrorist. that's tough, okay? that's why its a whole lot cleaner to deal with crimes. crimes, non-crimes. okay, im good with that. i can d

. host: from maryland we hear from bonnie on our republican line. caller: good morning. i don't blame the president for job loss. i blame our local politicians. our governor went to asia, our governor went to asia, hired a bunch of teachers, paid their expenses to relocate to baltimore, all the while they laid our teachers off. now he's going to india. he bragged. we have five companies in baltimore and we have 50 companies in india. he's traveling with businessmen at the taxpayers expense. to me, it would make more sense to hire local rather than go to other companies and pay them to come to our country and take our jobs. to me, this is our politician's fault. it's the locals. it's not the president's responsibility. it's the state responsibility to keep our jobs in our state. guest: now, i have to say i don't know about the conditions and the situation in maryland that you're talking about. but there's no question that state and local governments have been shrinking. they've lost about 550,000 jobs in all over the last couple of years. and so that's one area. states are dealing with
